"The food was amazing!!!! however, the customer service was the worst ever. we were a party of 2 and arrived right at our reservation time. we had already looked at the menu so we ordered immediately. our drinks took about 15 minutes to come out nd apps took maybe another 5-10 after that. our reservations were for 9pm so we were given our apps at about 930. our entrees came out a little before 10 (which was the time they closed). we were VERY hungry so we ate very fast, however our server was taking an unbelievable amount of time bringing the food out causing us to still be eating when they were putting tables away and turning lights in (very awkward). finally, they brought our desserts and check. as if the super drawn out dinner & awkward looks from the other servers weren't enough, they charged us DOUBLE what we were supposed to be charged and had the nerve to include a 20% tip!!! like I said before, the food was amazing but I strongly disliked feeling uncomfortable still being there when they were closing. had they brought our food out at a decent speed and not overcharged us it would've been an even better experience. I would not recommend this place to anyone due to their customer service."

"The food and service from our waiter was fantastic. We enjoyed the food so much that we went there for dinner on three consecutive nights.
The only negative is that they make you use your same cutlery for starter and keep it for your main. I asked for new cutlery.
Highly recommend this restaurant.

"I thought everything I ate was delicious, but I was very surprised when I ordered my chicken tikka masala and all I got was a plate full of meat. They weren't clear that everything was a la carte. I would have rather paid more for the entre and gotten a full meal. It was very tasty though!"

"Benares of both West Side and Tribecca have always provided high quality, delicious food at an awesome price. Even if I had to pay more it wouldn't be that unreasonable considering all the goodness you feel inside while eating it. I do have to say however that the cauliflower this time tasted a bit more BBQ than usual which took me a bit out of the Indian element."

"Good, low-key Indian food with a warm, casual ambience."

"We shared two entrees and appreciated how well the standard items of Indian cuisine - biryani and tandoor mixed grill - were prepared. The tandoori meats were juicy, not dry as one often finds, and the vegetable biryani was moist and tasty and a little different from usual. Portions were very generous. Service was friendly. Prices reasonable, especially in that part of town. And we were glad that the idiomatic music was in the background so we could have a conversation. We would return again"
